In this behemoth of a Christmas special Sam and James are joined by a veritable Quality Street mega-bucket of low quality guests including most of the Pidgin team, Bane, David Bowie and a bag of angry snakes. This gang of drunken fools ponder their favourite meals and restaurants of the year, Margot yells out obscenities and Craig barely speaks. They perform a Pidgin Nativity, Bane struggles to get a decent wifi signal, Chef Liz Allen poisons Harry Potter and Jamie Parker finally appears on the podcast. All this and many more verbal calamities including the second edition of the now classic 'Fondue With Hitler' will befoul your ears in the most festive and most dumb TKIOF yet.

In this week's game-changing episode, James and Sam find themselves locked in a battle of wits, a war of words, a...well they bicker quite a bit. In a tender way. They tell strange stories at a wine tasting and discuss the after work snack competition at Pidgin, before taking a strange detour into the history of coal mining. Sam makes burgers. James takes a bath. Margot joins them. What is the scent of love? What's your curry order? And how clean is your face? Find out this week, probably.

Ever wondered what you'd cook if Shaggy came round? Or David Attenborough? Or Beyonce for that matter? Wonder no more, because The Kitchen Is On Fire and they have all the answers. They also ponder the difference between being deaf and dead, New Zealand gangs, and bread made using the most curious of manmade yeasts. James eats some foil. Sam drops the c-bomb a lot. Would a Dairy Milk bar have saved Robin Williams? Is Margot really that delightful? And was Charles Manson such a bad guy? Find out all this and more in this week's TKIOF.

Tensions run high this week as James defends his friendships with old men, throws Sam under the bus and is haunted by Big Bird. Sam again struggles with the incredible density of his legs, goes drinking with FHM 'hotties' and can't stop naming detectives from  old shows. Thankfully our gruesome twosome regroup like some sort of cut rate culinary themed Power Rangers to ponder Eithiopia vs The Bahamas, dinner with Ban Ki Moon, where a prostate actually is and most importantly, what in all hell a 'flessenlikker' is.

Our heroes return to plumb such depths of fascinating conversation as menu jargon, misogynist restaurants, and sex in old people's homes. Sam apologises to a listener and vows not to hurt anyone again. James wears an entire body condom. Margot is the high school prom queen of Fort Boyard, then cleans the toilets. What kind of apple would James be? Does anyone like their name? And just how much are you allowed to drink in an old people's home?

In celebration of their 51st episode James and Sam settle in after a busy service at Pidgin with some of the team and a few snacks. A strange fridge fixer arrives and spends a lot of time grunting; a local wino goes past the restaurant in a somewhat eccentric fashion and ruins a wedding; there's a scandal with a fruit and nut bar. Sam wonders if he's about to die. James says 'if' a lot. Margot has a giggle meltdown. Craig takes a mysterious lunch break. Chef Elizabeth makes a podcast debut and has a bone to pick. Who is Geoff Wallace? Is Margot an animal? Do the Pidgin staff hate James and Sam? Find out this week, on The Kitchen Is On Fire.

It's the 50th episode but James and Sam have forgotten, so instead discuss restaurant peeves, hearty home fare, and sex with Dane Bowers. James decides he wants to be put face down in his coffin. Sam stays on his own at James' house and eats vegan noodles. What happened when Tom Cruise met Dustin Hoffman? What are duck feet called? And how fast can water snakes swim?

With the buzz of a busy kitchen in the background, the boys meet again to work their way through some pretty big-hitting topics, including casual sex, vintage port, peanut M and Ms, and Kevin Costner. Sam's nan buys him 'Erotica' by Madonna. James touches his willy. A guy called Hassan tries to sell them knock-off wines, and Margot joins to argue the difference between a cloud of passion and a 'bang'. Is 'ethnic' food racist? Is Errol a good name? Does Kate Winslet cause huge sausage consumption? And if you lost a testicle would it mean you could eat more?

Things get late and not a little loose in this after-service special coming not-quite-live from Pidgin. The boys are joined by restaurant manager Margot and sous chef Craig, and pile straight into a discussion about trench warfare, Russian baths, and a BNP cookery show. Sam wants a denim three piece morning suit. James wants to be a jouster. Will Craig ever sell out? Will Margot ever stop waving? And who will play them all in Pidgin: The Movie?
